From find to field
in minutes, not years.
A new standard for oil field appraisal.
With Hydrophilic technology, you'll be able to find the oil/water contact without having to drill additional wells. By measuring water and oil pressure inside the reservoir rock —a method never available before— we remove the need for a second appraisal well.
This will significantly shorten the appraisal phase and limit the environmental impact.
With one measurement, you'll know whether the reservoir is worth developing.
Trond Rolfsvåg, the inventor of the technology, established Hydrophilic AS in 2016 in order to develop the Hydrophilic Probe technology. In May 2017, the company was accepted into Validé’s Incubator program.
The «Proof of Concept» phase was completed in 2017, and included laboratory testing at
University of Strathclyde, independent verification of the results and theory at IRIS, and a conceptual tool design at Aarbakke Innovation. This phase was funded by Statoil «blue sky», Innovation Norway and the Oil & Gas Innovation Center (OGIC) in the UK. Currently, Aker BP, ConocoPhillips, Equinor, Faroe Petroleum and OMV provide financial support to the development of the technology.
The Hydrophilic advisors cover a lot of ground with their diversity in both experience and knowledge. Although they have refreshingly different backgrounds, they are still similar in that they have all taken risks and lived through changes in their past, and by doing so created new opportunities for other people. Hydrophilic is proud and fortunate to have them as advisors.
